While not my usual cup of tea anymore, this is an interesting shapeshifter story about two alpha male wolves from rival packs. Calling all werewolves/shapeshifter fans – this series will likely be for you!

The story is about how two young alpha males lives continue to cross with personal circumstances interfering with their mutual attraction. The story itself was well-written, but the plot unfolded very quickly. There were parts that could have been interesting to have learned more about, and there were clues given, that were quickly resolved.

There was only a little bit of sex in this one – two scenes, which were both very tame and lacking details. However, you could feel their shared passion, their regrets, and their relationship. If you are looking for hot werewolf sex – this is not the book for you.

Overall, this book is a great way to see if you are interested in shapeshifter M/M books – as it is focused around the story, with very tame sex (and no wolf sex scenes – THANK YOU very much!).

Out of four…

Read this if you are trying to jump into something new, or be entertained by the shapeshifter craze right now. This is not the best book on the market (see below for my recommendations), but it’s a quick read with a real story and twists woven in, that you can enjoy the M/M tension while exploring a new sub-genre.

Other authors/books to try (and why you’ll like them):

One of my favorite werewolf/shapeshifter book to date is Kate Steele’s “Altered Heart.” It is a great M/M read that is action packed with a LOT of sex action. It was also a great story and read.

Loribelle Hunt’s “Lunar Mates” series is a must-read series for all werewolf fans. You are able to easily get into the story and learn the characters. The sex is more tame, but still hot (and hotter than “Bound by Nature”).

Jeigh Lynn’s “Lunar Mates” series has more traditional male/female relationships with great plots. Not for M/M fans… but definitely for werewolf fans looking for intense relationships, hot sex and an action-packed story line.
